    Assange does not deserve to be demonized for what he's been doing.
    I demonize him because he's a rapist who isn't man enough to face up to the charges. Plus, personality wise, he seems like an asshole.

Not much sympathy for the kid, nor do I understand the overwhelming support and the seemingly hero-like treatment he's adorned with.
    They are both popular with those, both within our borders and without, who intensely dislike the United States. They're willing to overlook treason and rape in the process. It's quite a weird phenomenon.

    Is corporate media the new buzzword of the far left, guaranteed to be trotted out periodically when the facts don't support whatever anti-american rants are taking place?

    Are you implying that people should prize what's good for journalism over what's good for the federal government? Wouldn't that just be subjectively preferential?
    No, only a humble opinion.

    Assange speaks to UN panel and calls on US, UK and Sweden and speaks to respect free speech, and protect whistle blowers, and to free Bradly Manning. Ecuador and others try to convince the US, UK, and Sweden to allow safe passage and go back to Sweden to try to clear up these "sexual acts" allegations.

    Well, see, not everyone is going to pay much attention to what is or isn't good for journalism. On a federal level, I'm very much against journalism. Preferential, of course. I'd be fine with the people not knowing **** about war and international relations. I mean, they don't know **** about it anyway, so why give them any information? They're just going to misinterpret it and leave us at the mercy of populism.

    Of course you realize that the Corporate Media is for sale to the highest bidder in a Capitalist/Corporate society. Print and digital media space is a commercial enterprise and you buy that space. The bigger and better the space, the more you pay. You could do your homework on the "Mighty Wurlitzer" and initiate some curiousity in the ol' cerebellum regarding some of that space being bought by Intelligence services, gov't, gov't agencies, contractors, etc., to massage those cranial interpretations as opposed to objectivity.

    Re: Assange Speaks to UN

    Do you have any examples of intelligence services buying media space, Dave, or is this just one of those "You can't prove they haven't!" things?

    Wow, the fear and loathing in your tone.
